You don't need a checksum...the system will create one for you if you don't upload one.

so etree no longer wants a checksum to confirm data transfer? that's good. less confusion on the part of uploaders.

Nope, checksum isn't required for etree, but it's still a good idea. Otherwise, there's no way of telling whether a file has been omitted...so if you upload 9 files but the show has 10, the system will just say "Yup, these 9 files are fine" and derive them.
